The system can analyse the traffic in real-time.
Experts from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich have developed the Aegis Rider biker assistance system. It comes with built-in artificial intelligence, helping cyclists make the right decisions whilst on the road. The information is displayed on the helmet's glass together in an augmented-reality format.
The device consists of several cameras, a navigator, and a unique module that obtains the motorcycle's onboard system data. As a result, the Aegis Rider can easily recognise potential obstacles and recommends that the cyclist slows down or changes lanes.
Unfortunately, the system is still far from perfect: the augmented reality markers are too large. Therefore, it could distract cyclists from the road. Furthermore, the Aegis Rider does not consider the presence of puddles and bumps, so the developers still have a bit more work to do.
